  1. #1 Will I live long enough to see a Micro Cinema Camera? 
    I don't understand how a big powerful and wealthy company like BlackMagic can announce a release date of July, only to miss it by half a year!? Does anyone have any info as to when this lovely little micro cinema camera may be released? Can't wait to strap on my speedbooster and play with all these shiny expensive Nikon lenses...

    I phoned BM yesterday and a guy sheepishly admitted that it may be 2016 before it actually comes out!!! I'm old, I drink far too much and don't eat many vegetables, I fear I may die before it is released. Such a sad state of affairs :-(

    if i dont have it by dec im canceling my order, unless they announce it will now be 4k, this is extremely ridiculous, but if it doesnt work yet, then id rather not have it then have a thousand dollar problem.

    Indeed. It does make you wonder whether something is quite seriously wrong with it :-s

    and i was probably the first one to order from B and H at NAB last year, i was sitting on my ipad reloading the search for the black magic micro until it finally popped up! so if i dont have it, B and H doesnt have it, and that's pretty much the standard for consumers…though i once got my order from adorama first, so i actually do have an order from there placed one day later cause, what the hell?

    Just got off the phone with support. He said the only information they have is that it's expected for Q4.

    i dont like "the only information they have" and "expected"

    sounds exactly like NAB, the only info we have is that its expected to ship in july.
    but thank you for trying!
